Sliding Compound

Pros and cons for sliding and table saws?

I've narrowed my saw selection to either a table saw and a sliding compound (mitre) saw.

I want to make furniture so I need precise cuts and ease of making different joints so....

what are the pro's and con's for these two machines? Thanks

A table saw is meant for ripping wood. That means cutting wood in long strips. Ideal for large pieces such as plywood. A table saw will enable you to rabbet and notch joints for drawers, desk sides, head boards, etc. A table saw is also good for notching stiles for raised panel doors and for basic joints.

A radial arm saw or mitre saw is meant for cutting up lumber or trim into usable lengths. Mitre saws are great for moldings, stiles and certain custom joints. Mitre saws can be used for delicate cuts and compound angle cuts.

The basic power tools for a wood working furniture making shop are a table saw, mitre saw, joiner, shaper(router will work also), planer and sander. A drill press(for dowels and pilot holes) and a band saw would be handy if you can afford them.
